A PRESTONPANS man who admitted defecating in a sink at a new-build house has been sentenced.

Dillon Armstrong also vandalised the property by punching holes in doors and walls at the building, known as Plot 3, Bankpark Grove, Tranent.

The incident took place on December 12, 2015.

The 22-year-old, of High Street, pleaded guilty to the offence at a previous court hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court and sentence had been deferred for him to be of good behaviour.

When he returned to court last Tuesday, Sheriff Mackie heard that Armstrong had not been in trouble since then and decided to hand out an admonition.
